    going to the microsoft site all goes well from the
    searching for XP critical updates/service packs/drivers--
    identifies 24 needed---even doing one at a time, the
    download progress bar shows completion but the bar for
    install progress goes no where no matter how many hours I
    wait (even just for a 2MB download). They never install
    and never request I restart. Why? Do I have something set
    wrong? Is there a certain order to do these in i.e.
    Serive Packs first then criticals or drivers, etc)?
    Please help...I know that I desparately need to get this
    updated for security reasons and more!

    Do a search on your system for catroot2 folder, if you have it , delete it,
    clean out your c:\documents & settings\<you>\local settings
    temp directory

    c:\windows\temp and c:\temp as well

    reboot


    try windows update again
